Names of God: El Shaddai
We often forget. We see throughout history the Israelites and the church forgetting. We need to be reminded often of who God is in Scripture, church history and in our lives and churches.
The names of God are important because these names are not just what God does, it is who He is. I hope this will encourage you as you are reminded of how good, great, and awesome our God is.
El Shaddai means almighty or most powerful.
When Abram was ninety-nine years old the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless, (Genesis 17:1)
What it reminds me? Nothing is impossible for God. Abraham was told he was going to have a child in his old age. Throughout Scripture, what seems impossible, God does because He is all powerful. Today if you are facing a difficulty in your home, at work, at church, with your health, in relationships, remember that God is almighty and nothing it too difficult for Him.
